Sheldon Brown lives.

Sheldon Brown just talked me through how to lace a wheel. I went to his website and it was all there. Thanks Sheldon.

As long as we remember him, he is still alive for that momment.

I went back and read his April Fools' articles recently. Classic stuff. Best were the early Usenet ones when he suckered some people into thinking he was serious.

This week end he helped me when servicing a SA Three Speed Hub Gear.
It's good to know you can always rely on him.

I can't even look at any of my bikes without thinking of something he's written that I found helpful or just plain funny, and since I ride every day...

I just laced up a Nexus 8-speed premium hub to a Mavic A719 rim for a bike I'm building for my wife. (The parts all came from Harris.) A little Sheldon is in every wheel I build.

April 1, 2008 is going to seem a little flat.

I have subconsciously added a middle name to some of my posts in other forums. Wouldn't feel right doing it in here.
